The Bills offense turned in a dismal performance on Sunday, gaining just 160 yards in a 13-7 loss to the Ravens that saw the team fail to make big plays in the passing game.

The Ravens had a game plan that they said focused on making quarterback Tyrod Taylor beat them from the pocket, but another issue appears to be hindering the Bills on that side of the ball. That issue would be wide receiver Sammy Watkins’ surgically repaired foot.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported on Sunday morning that Watkins “is not 100 percent” and that his foot bothered him in practice in the last week or so. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Watkins has “severe discomfort” in the foot and that x-rays were taken after Sunday’s loss. No new break was found, per the report, and there’s not believed to be a surgical remedy for the issue, but shutting him down for a while has not been ruled out.

The Bills are back on the field against the Jets on Thursday night and it looks like Watkins’ status will be something to watch over the next few days.
